politics in my career. dick morris is the most dishonest, the sleaziest and the dumbest of all of them. i'm glad that fox news finally fired dick morris. but why do they still have karl rove on their payroll? that's what i want to know. can't get everything right, i guess. have a good one folks. see you back here tomorrow.

6:02am
schechner i will never be secretary of defense. >> how come? >> stephanie: they are holding up his nomination among other things they want some information about someone in his office that sexually harassed someone else. >> oh, and you would be more directly involved. >> stephanie: yes. >> i'm pretty sure chuck hagel never had to make that call the next morning. >> stephanie: oh to jacki? sorry, i know you are straight. >> i'm less worried about myself and more worried about t-bone and chris. good morning, everybody, white house counter terrorism chief and cia director john brennan will head up to the hill today for his confirmation hearings.
6:03am
he is facing tough questions. some congressional committees had access to a memo in june but now that it has been made entirely public, it is raising all sorts of concerns about the ethics and legalalty of using force against americans overseas. and the senate intelligence committee sent brennan questions prior to today's hearings including how do they determine whether someone is affiliated with al-qaeda. and the president will go to
6:04am
virginia to talk about his second-term agenda. he spent time with senate democrats yesterday, and also worked on how to work out his priorities. and new york times reports that obama is giving back by planning to hit the campaign trail this coming year. already on the calendar at least 14 fund-raising events. we're back after the break. ♪ i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us.
6:05am
while your carpets may appear clean. it's scary how much dirt your vacuum can leave behind. add resolve deep clean powder before you vacuum to expel the dirt within your carpets. resolve's deep clean powder is moist. absorbing and lifting three times more dirt than vacuuming alone. leaving you with a carpet that's truly fresh and clean. don't just vacuum clean. resolve clean.

6:13am
needs. it should lay out wisdom and aggressively counterattack views that are void of reason. >> surely bill o'reilly must have met ted nugent in the hallway when he was leaving sean hannity's studio. this is a guy who said hillary clinton should sit on his machine gun. >> stephanie: yes. >> and he has made threats against including president obama. >> stephanie: if i can make a small correction. i believe he said suck on. >> oh, i apologize it's not often that you hear phallus humor. >> stephanie: okay. rush limbaugh >> the president of iran has

told the editor in chief of an egyptian newspaper that iran is now a nuclear state. you know he waited for hill -- hilary to split with her ball lockbox before he made the announcement. >> yeah. i believe they sent a monkey into space before he came back with a makeover. >> stephanie: he's a slow loris. >> yes it's some kind of space time tin you um. >> stephanie: all right. steve doocy.
6:15am
>> days after retirement of hillary clinton, somebody launched a new website of her, showing off this glamorous new face. facelift, perhaps? but her aids say it is simply a way to reach here. >> stephanie: is this a facelift three days after she appeared on television. >> right. [ overlapping speakers ] >> rand paul is enough to make anybody look better in a photo. >> stephanie: exactly. and by the way she is wearing glasses because of the head injury obviously. >> and was gretchen carlson even sitting there? >> stephanie: yeah, like you say it's open season on hilary before she has even announced.
6:16am
>> over the last four years they have come up with ways to do their racist dog whistles is there a way to full this card in the same fashion. are they just going to say hilary is not like us down there. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: all right. oh, dick morris on piers morgan. oooooooooh. >> i had a wonderful talk with roger ailes who i really respect a week ago, and he said nothing is final on the table -- i was wrong at the top of my lungs. >> they fired you because you are wrong. a lot of people on fox are wrong. why have you been simpled out? >> [ inaudible ]. >> but do you know the answer? >> no, don't. i think i was wrong at the top

[ laughter ] >> stephanie: okay, michelle malkin. >> out here in the real word the medical device tax is causing layoffs across the country, the fact that so many people who were intending to go into medicine are no longer going into medicine. and the fact that so many small
6:18am
businesses doctors who were individual practitioners are either bailing and retiring all together or going into concierge care. people are shutting down their practice as they used to be constituted, dropping insurance all together, where now only the wealthiest can pay for care. congratulations obamacare heck of a job. >> stephanie: wow. first of all that's michelle malkin talking about brain drain on fox. secondly, there are no more doctors. >> yeah, it's going to be hysterical when we talk about obamacare, because it's so close, october of this year you'll be able to enroll in obamacare, and the moment the first applications come in collectively the right-wing world will explode.
6:19am
>> stephanie: okay. and we finish with bill o'reilly. >> many americans disrespectfully feel like they can do whatever they want to do. on the net troubled people say the most horrendous things hiding behind their machines. and shows like jersey shore and this idiot thing in west virginia, debase our culture all day long. >> stephanie: only bill o'reilly can talk about being respectful and polite. >> the only thing he must watch is his teleprompter so say the things that he said, and then to blame it on the rest of culture without having any sort of introspection. if you liken fox news to professional wrestlings, their ratings went through the roof when they admitted that professional wrestling was fake.
6:20am
so why don't they just point out when they are wrong, and when they are just stealing baloney, then you would have a lot of liberals watch. >> stephanie: in fairness i have to say who better than bill o'reilly to talk about rudeness. >> you pin head. cowards. gutter snides charlottetons, jerks, i just think he is a weasel, he is a corrupt midget. >> loufa, shower. >> stephanie: thank you very much. karl frisch go buy rice balls for dexter please. >> i plan on it. >> stephanie: bye, honey. 18 minutes after the hour. >> and jacki will be calling in right after this. >> stephanie: thank you. i pictured her head exploding.

world, and prop up the most horrible people in the world, and expect drones to bail us out. we have to have a marshall plan here to get us off of that poison that is actually killing us anyway, and drones -- that's not the magic bullet. >> stephanie: i hear you, but, again, i think barack obama has been trying to gets us out of george bush's foreign policy mistakes, but i get your point. let's go to brad in dallas. >> caller: hey. so i work in healthcare in dallas, and i heard a story -- about five years ago, a suburban doctor was going to have to close his practice because his patients were aging. more of them were getting on medicare, and he was finding that he couldn't make a profit in his practice anymore. and so -- as usual what the republicans are doing is taking something that was happening

anyway and drawing a line to something in the administration. >> stephanie: right. >> caller: this hand before obamacare was even voted on. so it is going on in some places -- >> stephanie: right. some of the insurance companies are obviously racing to raise their rates before obamacare kicks in, and then people are going oh it's obamacare, see what happens. >> caller: yeah, absolutely. >> stephanie: i'm sorry i thought you saw some other cute animal. >> no. no. i'm monitoring your social media. >> stephanie: oh, thank you. how is that going for me. >> caller: hi, stephanie. thank you for having me on. i just wanted to make a comment about the drone strikes, it's just -- as i'm hearing the news about them now justifying killing u.s. citizens outside of the count try, to me it feels like a slippery slope. it makes me wonder how long it

will be before they kill u.s. citizens inside of the country. and also will they then start lessening the severity of how they can kill citizens in the u.s. >> stephanie: well the president -- obviously that was the latest news is they are releasing these whole memos. actually i heard something joe scarborough said this morning that sounded interesting, he said that it troubles him, and he feels he did say it during the bush administration, but they should have at least have to go to a fisachord. remember george bush -- that there's some sort of oversight. >> right. >> stephanie: craig writes -- [ ♪ patriotic music ♪ ] >> stephanie: everybody has a very unique point of view on

this. craig says steph la, la la love me, love me -- okay. for those of you who have never been in war or in the military for that matter sometimes have a sanitized view of combat. i just retired after 27 years in the army. i'm currently in afghanistan working as a civilian. these attacks are not only reduced by the use of drones, whenever drones taking out an enemy, it saves lives. yes people do get caught up in the slattal damage on both sides. we see insurgents using children and women as shields and we take every measure to not harm them. we then go out and dismantle or destroy these devices only after they have been fired.
6:46am
forgive me, but i support the use of drones. you have never had to deal with recovering a vehicle that continues the remains of u.s. soldiers burned inside. now we can debate the merits of war all together, but that's for politicians. we have to survive over here and if have a tool that saves lives, we're all for it. if you don't believe me you are welcome to come visit. >> stephanie: i'm all for women in combat. but not me. i'm too much of a coward. okay. forty-five minutes after the hour. right back on the "stephanie miller show." >> announcer: she's your human antidepressant. it's the "stephanie miller show." ♪ take action themselves. as a human being, that's really important. this is not just a
